 to Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, Mich(igan)

Mrs. Leavitt assures Brownson that, as a professional geneologist, she is completely trustworthy and that he need have no objections to telling her what he knows of Obediah Delano. She is anxious to have a complete record of his family for Eugene Delano, and will again go to Keene, N(ew) H(ampshire), to find whatever else she can about this former hired man of Brownson's grandfather. She assures Brownson that nothing will be revealed to his cousins that can affect their thought about their grandfather.

Maurelian, (F.S.C.), Brother: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana

There are several accounts he cannot collect and he supposes the (Christian Brothers) College of Memphis, Tennessee must bear the deficit. It would be a scandal to have it said that some of the Catholic institutions failed to pay their dues to the (Catholic) Exhibit of (World's Columbian Exposition). It is a hardship for his college after being deprived of his services for three years to be obliged to pay the debts of other people. P.S. The World's Fair has been sever financially on their Brothers and he would feel justified in refusing such work in the future as no provisions are made for financial returns.

 to (Monsignor) Robert (Seton: Jersey City Heights, New Jersey

They met a very pleasant countess whose brother-in-law, an eastern Prelate, Monsignor Rochair, thinks he remembers (Seton) at Propaganda.

Seton would not wonder if (Louis) Sands were soon in Paris. Seton will soon call on (Hector St. John?) de Crevecoeur. Seton is studying some of Dr. Charcot's works for an article for the C(atholic) W(orld). Tomorrow Seton is going to call upon Professor Milne Edwards at the Jardin des Plantes. He just had a letter from (Thomas)Seton Jevons. How is Jack?

 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Since he saw Edwards in New York, he has met with some disappointments. He went to Van Buren, Maine, and found his intended place engaged.

A decree has been passed that anyone getting a dispensation from a religious order must remain in some house of his order until he gets a bishop. He intends to write to Father Corby to get a place and asks the loan of $ 20 to get to New York.

He sees from the Notre Dame catalogue that (Orestes A. Brownson's) "American Republic" is used in the university. He has been thinking of publishing an edition of it to sell for $1 and asks how many copies he could sell N.D. O'Shea's copyright has expired if he can call that a copyright which was merely a bargain to publish the work and pay his father so much per copy which he has not paid.

(Sands), Louis (Joseph): Lucerne, (Switzerland)
 to Monsignor Robert (Seton: Jersey City, New Jersey)

(Sands) wrote from here some weeks ago. (Seton)'s note of August has a melancholy streak; the life of a priest cuts him off from all the little nothings in this world that make life sweeter. (Sands) did not intend to criticize adversely (Seton)'s address at their wedding, but it was too personal for the solemn occasion in the Catholic Church. (Seton) has a warm friend and cousin in (Sands). The great seal (Seton) placed in his letter will be studied out. Three weeks ago (Sands) and Louisa (Sands) started off to see the Alps; they now mean to do the Rhine, the Black Forest, parts of Germany and France. In his wife (Sands) has drawn a lovely girl of noble disposition. (Sands) will write to William for the piece on (Seton) in the "World." (Sands) has never been able to solve the riddle of Savonarola's death.

Seton, W(illiam): Paris, (France)
 to (Monsignor) Robert (Seton: Jersey City Heights, New Jersey)

(Seton)'s letter of the 15th came today. Yesterday Sally gave a tea, and 20 Americans and a few French made the parlor lively. Two Baltimore girls, the Misses Busey, sang, and Miss Mitchel of Kansas City played the piano. Last evening they called on Mrs. Thorn, granddaughter of Vanderbilt. Seton's sequel to "The Primeval World" will appear in the October C(atholic) W(orld). Yesterday Seton visited Pere (Auguste) Leroy, O.P., who has just returned from Switzerland; he is quite a writer on scientific subjects. Pere Didon has lately returned from the East. Sally went to see Professor Milne Edwards, but he was still on vacation. The Americans are beginning to thin out; the American line at Southampton is building two new ships at Chester, Penn(sylvania). The Setons prefer the Bourgoyne, October 27. (Seton) does well to encourage the High School teachers. They expect Madeleine Letterman from Munich tomorrow.

Hamilton, Charles S.: Columbus, Ohio
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Sister Therese tells Hamilton that Hudson suffers from something that resembles erysipelas of the face and which is not quite like it either. One of the most common maladies of the face is eczema, the characteristics of which Hamilton gives. Hudson may form some idea of the nature of his complaint. Hamilton must rely upon answers to certain questions in prescribing for Hudson.

Father (James J.) Loughlin has shown him Seton's letter of the 22nd, insisting that Shahan write the article on (Giovanni Battista) De Rossi. Seton's long personal knowledge of the maestro and his archaeological training commend Seton for the work. If Seton wishes Shahan to engage in the work, Shahan suggests a symposium.

Poultney, Walter de Curzon: (Baltimore, Maryland)
 to (Monsignor Robert Seton): Jersey City Heights, New Jersey)

He fears (Seton) has never taken the trouble to look at his signature which he always writes with a small "de." The papers nearly always put a capital "D" and frequently invert it as Walter De Courcy Poultney. In regard to the snobbery question he must make a rather spiteful remark that "it takes a thief to catch a thief."

Arkell, Henry V.: Paris, (France)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Arkell is a Catholic journalist residing in Paris who would like to join the staff of contributors to the Ave Maria. He is the Paris correspondent of the London Graphic and Daily Graphic; he is the correspondent of the Catholic Times of Philadelphia. Arkell thinks the Ave Maria would be strengtened by a weekly couple of pages of "Notes from Europe". If his proposition is unsuitable to the exigencies of the Ave Maria he would be grateful if Hudson would mention him to any Catholic editor of his acquaintance. Monsignor (James) Nugent's illness has put an end to his proposed visit to the United States.

Walsh, Father W(illiam): Chattanooga, Tenn(essee)
 to James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

He meant to have sent something to Edwards' great historical collection, but was too busy. The enclosed from (J.J. Furlong) the pastor at New Madrid, Missouri, may serve as key for his inquiry as the ministry of priest in West Tennessee prior to 1840. Anything about Father Michael McAleer, 1st pastor at Memphis, Father Joseph Stokes, Father Wm. J. Clancy, Father L(ewis) Hoste and E(lisha J.) Durbin, or of any priest who ministered in Watauga, Cumberland, Miro, Washington District, the names by which Tennessee was known. He noticed Griffin's reference in current issue of N.W. Chronicle; it is one which Edwards well deserves. He hopes Edwards will persevere in his great historical work.
